I've said it all week. We've been getting these lines for the Phillies for over two weeks now, and they keep paying out. Why in the world would you stop? Sure, it's only a matter of time before the Phillies cool off, but until that time comes, I'm enjoying doubling and tripling my money on a nightly basis.
